The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the home, and somehow it manages to get overlooked. Every bathroom should have great storage options and a sense of personal style. Here are some ideas to upgrade your bathroom on the cheap:

Make sure you have plenty of storage in the bathroom. Use kitchen canisters or wall-mounted racks to store cotton balls, Q-tips, and bathroom supplies, and use wall hooks to hang towels.

• To spruce up old windows and add privacy to a bathroom, use decorative window film.

Update your hardware. It’s fairly easy to switch out old cabinet knobs, towel bars, and drawer pulls.

Replace old light fixtures. Some of the ugliest light fixtures hide out in old bathrooms.

Paint the walls. In a bathroom, you usually want to go with a semigloss paint that will clean up more easily than a flat finish.

Switch out the medicine cabinet. If you have a surface-mounted medicine cabinet, it’s pretty easy to take it out and install a new one in its place. If you have a built-in, there’s a good set of tips on installing a recessed medicine cabinet here.

Spring for new accessories. You could try new towels, shower curtain, bathmat, mirror, or wastebasket.
